We are celebrating one more year the Arts Night, this time at the Movies, on Thursday, 25th of May, 2017.
This year we will be showcasing our students’ achievements in our Arts programs with movie themes. Our celebration will begin at 5:00 p.m. with performances from our PYP program including dance, drama and music. Afterwards our guests will have a chance to explore our PYP, MYP and DP student art exhibitions, Grade 8 Community Projects, partake in art, music and drama workshops, games and activities, as well as watch short films produced in our after-school film club. We will wrap up the night with final performances from our PYP and MYP music classes and clubs.
In PYP Visual Arts lessons, students have been exploring a broad variety of films as a starting point for their art making over the past number of weeks. They have drawn inspiration from characters, scenery and concepts in many well-known films. Some of the classes have created individual pieces, whilst others worked on collaborative projects. They used a broad range of media including drawing, painting, collage and animation. In extra-curricular art clubs, students worked on movie themed 3D props for the stage scenery and decoration.

Interactive Film Music-Making Workshop with Mr. Fernando and Mr. Devin
Location: PYP Music Room
How many times have you wished it was you up on the stage? How many times did you wish you could feel what it’s like to play music in front of an audience? Do you enjoy film music? This is your chance to answer those questions and enjoy the thrill of performing on stage. During three 20-minute slots, we will work on three famous pieces of film music and will prepare an accompaniment to perform together with Grade 5 students on the closing show for the evening. No previous music experience is necessary for this workshop. Only 10 people will be able to join each slot, so come early to make sure you get your ticket.
Parents, families and friends are welcome to enjoy the Arts Night with us. We look forward to seeing you all there!
